Welcome to New Team Members
Updated: Nov 25, 2020
PSA would like to welcome two new members to the team: Annaliese van Wijk in the role of Project Officer and Lucinda Miranda in the role of Project Office Administrator.
Annaliese is currently studying to obtain her Bachelor of Applied Science in Project Management at RMIT and to date has excelled at the course having received the award for highest GPA for her year level! As a mature student, Annaliese has arrived at Project Management having had real life experience in retail management in Victoria and Queensland. This has given her good grounding when dealing with people and when asked why she chose Project Management, Annaliese had this to say:
“I chose to pursue a career in project Management because I wanted to be part of the diverse construction and project management industry, it allows me to utilise my skills gained through previous experience in management roles.
Halfway through her studies now, Annaliese has found the Project concepts and techniques subjects most enjoyable because they have given an insight into project planning and scheduling methodology used in the industry. Annaliese is enjoying the challenge of full time study coupled with part time work at PSA where she will be receiving on-the-job training by PSA mentors and we look forward to her valuable contributions as a PSA team member and her growth as a Project Manager.
Lucinda has over 5 years’ experience in a variety of Community Programs in the Not-for-Profit Sector She has coordinated the delivery of Federally Funded Community Programs across Geelong and Ballarat, focusing on alleviating Social Isolation in Older People. Lucinda is working in a role of office co-ordinator while gaining valuable project experience that can be transferred to her other passions of co-ordinating arts projects. As part of her role placement, Lucinda completed PSA’s Community Program Management workbook and has identified learnings for other community projects that she has been involved with and how they can improve in the future.
